The JALLAO was credited with sinking a 5795 ton vessel and rescuing 5 American airmen during her 4 patrols. She earned the Asiatic-Pacific Area Service Medal and 4 Battle Stars during these patrols. The JALLAO was decommissioned in 1947. She was recommissioned and converted into a "Guppy" type submarine in 1952. On 26 June 1974 she was transferred to Spain where she served under the name, SUMBARINO.
